The Water Balloon Dropped

Dear John,
 
The water balloon has dropped. And I know you know what I mean. Every major thing in my life has been preceded by the Lord dropping a water balloon on my head. I'm going along my merry way, minding my own business, and something that was never on my radar falls out of the sky. Right after I asked you to rally the friends and family and pray for my financial situation, the water balloon dropped.
 
It started at Bekah's jewelry party. I rarely go to things like that, and never go to anything straight from work. But this time it seemed like the right thing to do. Remember Lady Remington? They started a jewelry line and changed the name to Lia Sophia. It's beautiful stuff at great prices. I took a catalogue and showed it to Janice on the 4th - you know how she loves jewelry and wears it wonderfully. She wanted to host a party, but Bekah's sister lives in Texas. All this discussion ended up being on Bekah's Facebook post - long story - and Bekah offered to host a party for me, I talked to Heather, and now I'm a Lia Sophia advisor. I'm having my first party a week from Saturday.
 
I'm excited about it. This came out of nowhere and is an answer to prayer. Of course, I still need your prayers. I'll be trying to build a business, needing to make sales and book parties, and there's a lot to learn. So keep the family and friends praying for me. I'm starting something new and you're not here, and yet you are. I don't feel at all like I'm doing this without you. I feel and appreciate your prayers, support, and faith in me. And it helps. It always has. It always will.
 
Adore you always,
Joan.
